Compare Cloud Servers
Compared to typical and even high-end servers, cloud servers deliver a higher amount of performance & reliability at a much lower cost.
With our cloud servers, you can scale up or down, instantly with possibility of reverting in case of any problems, all within seconds from our portal.
A cloud server is a virtual dedicated server instance powered by Citrix XenServer, orchestrated using OpenStack and run on robust and redundant hardware. The cloud server instances give you dedicated, secured and isolated compute resources, just as you would using a dedicated server. The instances are allocated fully dedicated instances exactly as you would have on a dedicated server, so your CPU, memory, disk and network I/O are all guaranteed.
Often, dedicated server providers also offer specific type of plans that are geared towards a specific set of users. For example, you will have a hosting provider that only offers small generic low-performance servers with low amounts of RAM, while others that offer only high-end servers.
You will rarely find a company that offers the entire range from low-end to high-end servers in specifications to reduce operational costs. Cloud servers allow you to deal with us for all your compute needs, regardless of how much power you need, it’s always available for your usage.
The fact that cloud servers are virtualized gives them numerous advantages over dedicated servers by offering a large amount of additional features that cannot be done for dedicated servers, such as KVM (typically an extra that’s paid per month) for all servers, full power control, ability to reimage and take snapshots of your server anytime, features which are impossible to offer with dedicated servers.
|Cloud Servers||Typical Dedicated Server|
|Cloud servers run on robust, high-end servers that maintain redundancy at power, network & storage levels, all included for no extra costs. This means that you don’t have to worry about long failures and outages.||Dedicated servers rarely have any redundancy in place. Any power, network or hardware failure could come with long expensive downtime and potential full catastrophic failure, unless you pay much more for hardware.|
|Cloud servers run on the same platform regardless of their size, so your server with 256MB of RAM can become a server with 64GB of RAM within a few minutes, with almost nearly no downtime, without any hassle of hardware migration, long open tickets with support and long outages.||Dedicated servers usually provide you with server hardware that fits your minimum requirements to reduce costs. When you need to upgrade, the pricing jump tends to be very big as providers need to change the entire hardware to support more capacity, which leads to longer outages.|
|Cloud servers are created and provisioned instantly, within 1 to 2 minutes within a large pool of resources. The payment is the same regardless of how fast the server is created and because of the extremely large pool of resources, you can scale up and add compute capacity almost instantly, with no problems.||The fastest time that a dedicated server can setup a server, in extreme cases with a very large upfront payment is 1-4 hours. Also, those servers are also not always guaranteed to be available so when the time for extra on-demand capacity comes, your provider may not be able to provide you with that capacity.|
|Cloud servers are created in a huge pool of compute resources which contains terabytes of memory and disk storage, this allows you to start up any server at any time regardless of how large or small it is, with no delays at all because we always have enough compute power for your workloads.||Dedicated server vendors tend to usually have a specific set of hardware that they utilize which can limit your resource options. For example, they may not be able to deliver a server with up to 64GB of RAM, and if they do, it might take quite some time to supply you with that server.|
|Near Instant Scaling|
|Cloud servers scale easily from your control panel, you simply decide what you’d like to upgrade and the process is completed automatically for you. Once the resizing is done, all you need to do is simply confirm everything is correct in our system, with the option to revert the resize.||The process of upgrading your dedicated server usually involves raising a ticket with your provider requesting an upgrade, waiting for their response, paying for the invoice and scheduling a time for them to shutdown your server to complete the upgrade, which is a very long process.|
|Hourly Billing & Utility Bandwidth|
|Cloud servers provide you computing power just like your power utility company provides you with electricity. You receive an invoice at the end of the month for what you’ve consumed, no extra charges or hidden fees.||Dedicated servers have high starting pricing with zero redundancy. Added redundancy comes at very expensive costs and generally isn’t included with any servers. Also, dedicated servers must be prepaid every month.|
|Snapshots & Cloning|
|With snapshots, you can get a point-in-time snapshot of your cloud server at anytime, without shutting it off. Also, you can use those backups to create a new server instantly. This means that if anything ever happened to your existing server, restoring it takes nothing more than 1-2 minutes.||It’s impossible to get a point-in-time snapshot of a dedicated server because there’s no way to access the disk while the operating system is using it. This only leaves the option of regular backups that take a long time to restore in the event that the server fails.|
